Kansas hosts 2005-2007 Collegiate National Championships

The University of Kansas and KLM Marketing Solutions will host the US Collegiate Road National Championships for the next three years, USA Cycling announced today. The event was originally intended for New Haven, Connecticut, but when the promoter ran into some unforeseen issues, the '05 Nationals were left without a host. The KU Cycling Club and KLM Marketing Solutions stepped in and despite having only five months to plan, the preparations are well under way.

Competition will consist of a road race, criterium, and team time trial offering challenges to riders of all calibres. The road course is a 23 mile loop around Lake Perry. "It's a very hilly and challenging course," said KLM Marketing Solutions President Bill Marshall. "Anyone who says Kansas is flat has only driven their car there - not ridden a bike."

Registration information and other details for the 2005 event, scheduled for May 13-15, will soon be available at www.usacycling.org and at www.klmmarketingsolutions.com.
